    That's pretty sweet, but why do you need mud tires when the trailer is being towed and doesn't really need to have any grip?

    i love those little trailers. There perfect for two and toys. eXtreme 4x4 made one like that with the same size pop tent, but on a huge goose neck trailer that could fit a full size rig. Congrats on the new toy!

    I'll post pictures of the inside later. We love the thing. It's not very heavy, like 2500-3000 pounds and the taco pulls it great.

    It's a 2009 jayco baja 10y and we got it for $9k. We did payments since we snt wanbto give our cash away and it's 140/month. Nothing really for all the memories and good times we'll have. We should all et some and plan a tacomaworld pop up camping meet!

    Mid tires cause it looks cool and is less likely to get stuck and more traction when brakeing cause it has electric brakes!!

    We got it from the dealer who said an older couple didn't know how to work it so they slept on the front deck. It was never slept in or used on the inside. We can tell by looking lol. So we basically got a 6k discount cause it was very very slightly used. Lol!!

    my bro has the fleetwood version of that! the E3 model with a slide out. his is heavy fully loaded. it is the best sleep ever in that thing after a long hunt. i want one like yours, no slide out..but i worry about the weight. i carry tons of gear on long trips.

    hey, tip. if you look under it. the hose that goes from the fill up hose, to the storage tank fails regularly. we upgraded that cheap plastic one with a food grade hose. much better.
